Join Linc Caplan, senior research scholar at Yale Law School, to discuss the implications – and consequences – of the Supreme Court as a political institution. He’ll explore why the public should treat the Court differently in presidential elections; why the Senate should approach confirmation hearings differently; and why students should learn about the Court differently. Q&A will follow.

Prof. Caplan is the author of The Tenth Justice: The Solicitor General and Other Books, and is a regular contributor to The New Yorker. He formerly served on the editorial board of The New York Times.
